2016 Conference on Communications Policy Report - Download The Report

The 31st Aspen Institute Conference on Communications Policy took place in Aspen, CO, August 14-17, 2016. Given this timing, it seemed appropriate for the conference to identify the key communications issues that would face the incoming administration and to propose promising approaches for dealing with those issues.

This report is a series of chapters, written by rapporteur Richard Adler, that synthesizes the ideas that emerged from participants during the two-day dialogue. It explore areas where the new Administration should focus its efforts concerning communication policy. The report also includes recommendations to promote inclusion and expand opportunities for all citizens, how to encourage continued investment and innovation, and strategies to create a trust environment online to protect citizen’s digital lives.
